  • DescriptionOur farm is a llama refuge located in the hill country of south central Texas northwest of San Antonio. Normal stays are 1 to 3 weeks. The hill country of Texas has four seasons with different activities possible during each season. Our main focus is the care and rescue of llamas and alpacas.
    Volunteers help with the compassionate care of animals or the repair or construction of out-buildings or maintenance of facilities and pastures.
